Sew Much Love

Bringing warmth & comfort into the homes of people who need it most.

What It's All About

Amidst this COVID-19 pandemic, coming together to volunteer may not be possible, but that does not mean we can’t find other ways to collaborate together as a Habitat community to bring comfort and love into homes of vulnerable families.

Sew Much Love is a new, all-year-long initiative by Habitat Singapore to co-create Agape Blankets with our supporters, for low-income families sheltering against colder seasons around the region or vulnerable seniors in Singapore feeling the strain of social isolation.

There is no purer expression of love than Agape love - selfless, all-giving & unconditional. With our Agape Blankets, we can bring warmth, comfort and hope through this practical and heartfelt gift.  

How It Works

Make a small donation to receive & decorate a fabric square with well-wishes, a drawing or hand-sewn embroidery - depending on your creative skill level!

Habitat will collect all digital designs & transfer it to our quilt patches. These will be handed over to our talented sewing volunteers to transform into a one-of-a-kind Agape Blanket

Completed Agape Blankets will be sent to vulnerable families around the region from Singapore to Nepal and Indonesia.
